Dale Wolff, president of the Nez Perce County Farm Bureau, and his son Colin, talk about some of the challenges that they meet while dry land farming in northern Idaho. David Sparks, Idaho. Ag Today. Speaker2: The difference between irrigation and dry land. One, you don't have a water district or association or the state to mitigate water use. It's whatever God gives us that is not part of it. You're not nearly as diverse or able to be as diverse in the crops that you grow because you just don't have the water. I'd really say the biggest obstacle is just weather and timing. The biggest obstacle, just a very short period of when, you know, crops really need to be in the ground and some years it can be 14 days, you know, a good two weeks, you can have a decent weather and and get the crop in early and some years, you know, you got 4 or 5 days and it's either going to rain all the time or you're going to be parked or it's just not going to rain anymore and you're done. And whatever moisture you have is what you have. Weather just seems to be kind of a little more. More of a key factor. So yeah, I think that's probably one of the biggest obstacles I think we have. Speaker1: It's just whether yeah, whether or not we get rain while we're dry land farming.
